Imation adds smallest USB flash drive


Imation has delivered its smallest USB flash drive, the Imation Atom Flash Drive.

It features an ultra-compact design, performance and high storage capacities, combined with password protection, partitioning software, and Windows Vista ReadyBoost compatibility.
Roughly the size of a paperclip, the Atom Flash Drive is the smallest among Imation's flash drives, measuring less than 3,8cm long and 1,27cm wide, and weighing less than an ounce.
The ultra-compact and unique design allows users to attach the drive directly to other mobile devices making it easy to manage and transfer digital files. A sleek black and aluminum finish make it a stylish and professional choice for professionals on the go.
“Just as the atom refers to the smallest molecular particle, the Atom Flash Drive refers to the smallest portable storage device in our extensive portfolio," says Imation country manager Peter Welsh. “Imation continues to demonstrate its channel leadership by introducing the data storage technology and small form factors that tech savvy professionals demand.”
Using the Imation system in package (SIP) module, the Atom drive allows users to store up to 8Gb of data, while the password protection and drive partitioning capabilities safely and efficiently manage their information – all with a smaller footprint than previously available from Imation.
The Imation Atom Flash Drive is fully compatible with the Windows Vista operating system and Windows Vista ReadyBoost technology. When used with the Windows Vista OS, the Atom Flash Drive can be used to boost system performance by allowing the drive to act as an additional memory cache. The drive is available in 1Gb, 2Gb, 4Gb and 8Gb capacities.
